How Does BBX Work?

BBX works along side your existing bank account and doesn’t replace your cash business but gives you additional revenue by selling your spare capacity within the BBX community.


Promote your spare capacity to the BBX network through your account manager.


Another business owner part of the BBX community buys it in return you receive BBX pounds.


Use your BBX trade pounds to buy things you want saving your cash.

What is Spare Capacity?

Spare Capacity is the ability to take on more business without increasing FIXED COSTS. It is perishable and if not captured you can never get it back.

Some examples of this are:

  • Empty tables in a restaurant
  • Slow moving or surplus stock
  • Unfilled appointments
  • Vacant hotel rooms
  • Unsold advertising space

If you were to sell this spare capacity what would it cost?

  • Wholesale purchase price of product
  • Transport
  • Sub contract labour

For most businesses it is only the variable/replacement cost because when you take on an additional customer fixed costs such as rates, rent and PAYE for staff do not rise.

Use it or Lose it!

If you don’t capture your spare capacity today it will be worth nothing tomorrow.

What is in it for me?

  • Guaranteed new customers
  • Save on costs
  • Improve lifestyle
  • Increase turnover for exit sale
